Thank you for taking the time to visit our new website! Excelsior is a family-oriented Christian resource used in tandem with homeschooling. We are privileged to assist home schooling families in the Midlands as they direct the education of their students. We hope you’ll consider joining this committed community of teachers, parents, and students.
We offer classes from four years of age through high school. We offer strong academic instruction, and also have times for your student to build relationships inside and outside of the classroom.
The Academy classes, ages 4-13, will develop an effective Christian worldview as they study history, literature, foreign language, art, and optional electives. Academy students will be invloved in monthly field trips and a service project each semester. All of our High School offerings are college-preparatory classes with honors options which must be declared at the beginning of the school year. High school students are able to take part in monthly socials, occasional service projects, and an annual spring formal.
Excelsior is not a third option support group and satisfies no requirements for legal accountability. You must register with either your school district, SCAIHS, or a third option support group by the 10th day of your district’s start date to legally homeschool.
Classes are held at First Baptist Church of West Columbia. The church is located at 400 State Street, West Columbia, SC 29169, and is convenient to downtown Columbia just across the Gervais Street bridge. Our classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from August through April. Contact us for more information!
